Volunteers in Castleford have been given a boost in their bid to improve a piece of land blighted by fly tipping.

Smawthorne Marsh, off Pontefract Road, is currently choked with weeds and plagued by rubbish-dumping and vandalism.

Smawthorne Marsh Wildlife Group – set up in 2012 to clean up the land – has received an offer of help from environmental charity Groundwork Wakefield through its X Marks the Spot campaign.
